Creators of The Renowned “Oscar” Statuettes Move to Walden Set Out For August

Walden, NY – On March 6, The Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry, makers of the renowned Oscar award statuettes, held a press conference to announce the purchase of the Big Apple Circus’ 31 acres and 60,000-square-foot building on Edmunds Lane in Walden, New York. Jay Feinberg, Associate Broker with John J. Lease Realtors, the leading independent real estate company in Eastern Orange County, brokered the commercial real estate deal with Polich Tallix Fine Art Foundry, finding them the perfect property to call home and create jobs in the community.

Public officials from Orange County and local government came out to support and welcome Polich Tallix as part of this amazing community.

“A place where a relationship between business and community will surely be forged. A place that makes such an iconic statue, recognized around the world. It gives me great pride as a Walden native and representative to welcome Polich Tallix to our community, a village built on the backs of the working people, which once again be known for their industry,” John Ravella, Walden Village Manager.
